SECTION I. Eings thrown on a Screen hy a Concave Mirror consisting of a lens dimmed at the iirst surface, and quicksilvered at the hack. Condition of distinctness when the Eings are thrown on a Screen, or of fixity when they are viewed in Air. Investigation of the phenomena observed when the Luminous Point is moved in a direction perpendicular to the Axis of the Mirror . . 160 SECTION II. Bands formed by a Plane Mirror, and viewed directly
by the Eye..........170
SECTION III.    Bings formed by a Curved Mirror, and viewed directly hy the Bye, when the Luminous Point and its Image are not in the same plane perpendicular to the axis     .....    178 SECTION IV.
